Facial recognition surveillance would require warrant under bipartisan bill

  Facial recognition surveillance would require warrant under bipartisan bill Currently, there are no limits on how federal law enforcement agencies can use facial recognition. James Martin/CNET The Facial Recognition Technology Warrant Act was introduced by Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, and Sen. Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah. The bill calls for federal agencies like the FBI and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to obtain a warrant if they want to use facial recognition for ongoing surveillance, like tracking a person's whereabouts for longer than 72 hours.

Homer Walter Drew Jr. (born September 29, 1944) is an American former college basketball coach and administrator who coached at Washington State, LSU, Bethel College, Indiana-South Bend, and Valparaiso who retired from college basketball in 2011 with 640 career wins

That’s the good news.

“It’s a wonderful honor,” he said.

The better news? Due to a lucky break in scheduling, he won’t miss any games at the small, Nashville-area high school school where he still, at age 75 and having battled cancer, volunteers as an assistant.

“Once a coach, always a coach,” said his son, Scott, who is the head coach at Baylor. “He can’t stay away. He’s going to find a practice somewhere.”

Facebook built a facial recognition app that identified employees

  Facebook built a facial recognition app that identified employees Facebook's stance on facial recognition has changed as of late, but its past enthusiasm for the technology may have been stronger than previously thought. Business Insider has learned (subscription required) that Facebook developed an internal mobile app between 2015 and 2016 that used facial recognition to identify coworkers and their friends. You only had to point the phone at someone to get their name and profile picture -- helpful if you were struggling to remember the name of a colleague you met at a party once.BI claimed that one version of the app could identify anyone on Facebook with enough data, but the company suggested that wasn't true.

Scott Homer Drew (born October 23, 1970) is an American college basketball coach and the current head coach of Baylor University Bears men's basketball team.

"I Never Asked for This" Is a memorable quote by Adam Jensen, the main character in the hit 2011 video game Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The quote is often placed over an image of Jensen (or a character with Jensen's iconic shades placed on them, ) wherein the image then serves as a reaction.

“I’m just helping out,” Homer said, trying to downplay his role.

“He does more than ‘help out,’ ” said Casey Shaw, the Davidson Academy’s head coach who also happens to be Homer’s son in law. “He’s right in there on every drill, working with the players. I have to tell the guys, ‘Remember, this guy is 75 years old.’ ”

This is the beauty of Homer Drew reaching the Hall of Fame. He isn’t the winningest coach of all time. He isn’t the most famous. He wasn’t the highest paid. In a business full of self-promoters, career climbers and guys who are more recruiters than coaches, he is a throw-back, a guy more than content at being a mid-major teacher of the game.

He’s so humble that when the Hall of Fame called to tell him he had been voted in, he was happy and overwhelmed. Yet, he didn’t mention it to his family. Then when the official announcement came out, they all called up and said, “Dad, why didn’t you say anything?”

Europe’s Not Prepared Enough for Facial Recognition Technology

“I meant to tell them, but I forgot,” Homer claimed. “At 75, you forget things.”

That’s Homer Drew, they all say. So, too, is spending his time at the small high school where two of his grandsons, Isaiah and Caleb, play. He’s also been an assistant to his daughter, Dana, when she was coaching a middle school travel team, where another grandson, Luke, played.

Basically, if there is a ball bouncing somewhere, Homer is going to find it.

“It gives him something to do,” Janet Drew, his wife of 52 years, joked. “If not he’d probably drive me nuts, so I’m happy.”

Homer Drew spent 11 years coaching Bethel University, a small NAIA school in Minnesota. He then did one season at Indiana University-South Bend. Then 22 at Valpo. He always won — 640 total victories and 26 winning seasons, including 18 where he won 20 or more. He reached seven NCAA Tournaments at Valparaiso.

His most noted appearance came in 1998, when the Crusaders reached the Sweet Sixteen in part to his son Bryce hitting a famous buzzer-beating three pointer against Ole Miss.

China now requires face scans to sign up for phone service

  China now requires face scans to sign up for phone service China is as determined as ever to link real identities to the digital world. As of December 1st, anyone signing up for a new cellphone or cellular data contract is required to not only show their national ID card, but submit to a face scan to verify that identity. It's ostensibly meant to reduce fraud, but it also reduces your ability to use phone services in an anonymous way -- it'll be that much easier for the Chinese government to silence dissenters.There are privacy issues beyond that, too.

He never traveled to Darién, but could have seen the Pacific sometime after his conquest of Mexico or during his 1524–26 visit to Honduras. New Zealand artist Michael Parekowhai created a monumental artwork entitled "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer " for the Venice Biennale 2011.

Ah, right in the feels! This clip is from the episode "On the Run" (S1E40).

That was one glorious moment in time. It meant no more, however, than all the practices, road trips and team meals across the years.

Every coach wants to work with the best talent possible, but Drew says what he truly loved was getting to teach players who shared his love for the game.

“If someone has a similar passion as you, it’s enjoyable to help them get better,” Drew said. “They are working as hard as possible and you can see it paying off. That and putting a team together. You have to get a group of young people to sacrifice a little bit of their individual talent to make the team better.”

When you are in it for the purity of the pursuit, there is no difference between preparing for an NCAA tournament game or running a practice for some 11-year-olds. Coaching is coaching and among coaches, Homer Drew is one of the most respected in America.

The simple satisfactions is why he never pushed to get hired by a bigger school in a more prominent conference despite the on-court success. Valparaiso was more than enough — a terrific school, a great community and a program that could be competitive.

Chinese companies want to help shape global facial recognition standards

  Chinese companies want to help shape global facial recognition standards The use of facial recognition technology is continuing to expand, despite concerns about its accuracy and fairness and about how it could be used by governments to spy on people. These concerns have been heightened following a report by the Financial Times which shows that Chinese groups have a significant influence in shaping international standards regarding the technology. The report details how Chinese companies including ZTE, Dahua and China Telecom are proposing standards for facial recognition to the UN's International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the body responsible for global technical standards in the telecommunication industry.

Van Gogh is finally getting the recognition he deserved. But, I believe drawing and sketching still should be a solid foundation for all forms of visual art. But, only two months after being released he died from a gun shot wound, never getting the recognition he deserved in life.

“Janet and I just really enjoyed the city and the location,” he said of the small town in Northwest Indiana. “It was a great place to raise a family while also being close enough to Chicago that you could go there and shop or watch [professional sports].”

What he lost in money or fame by never jumping to the Big Ten, he gained every other way. Scott became his assistant for nine years before taking over at Valpo and then Baylor. Bryce played for him and then, after six years in the NBA, came back and became his assistant as well. He later became head coach at Valpo and until this year, Vanderbilt.

“That allowed me to have my sons around me longer than most parents,” Homer Drew said. “I’ve always felt blessed to have that.”

Both Scott and Bryce have included their father in their college programs, regularly peppering him for ideas and advice. That’s nice, but there is nothing like hands-on teaching. NCAA rules don’t allow volunteers to work practice. So when his son-in-law, himself a longtime professional player in Europe, took over as a high school coach, Homer of course started showing up.

“He’s still a great coach,” Casey Shaw said. “You can tell how much he loves it.”

Saturday Homer Drew, a coach who never sought fame, enters the Hall of it.

It’s incredible, he notes.

By next week, though, he’ll be back in Nashville, back at practice, back to teaching the basics to some hoops loving kid.

It’s where he is, and always has been, most comfortable.
